These skull mezcaleros are truly works of art! They are keepsake, one of a kind pieces to be treasured and passed down generations.
The renowned sculptress makes each batch over a labor intensive 14 day period. She hand molds each cup from clay and individually carves each skull, sun dries the pieces, fires the gas kiln, files, paints, applies coating and then fires the kiln again for a second and final time. The attention to detail on each tiny, one inch skull (see picture) - the eyes, the teeth, the carvings is truly magnificent.
Every batch we custom order is unique since each gas kiln firing produces its own pieces. The kiln has a mind of its own, as she says. We are rarely able to replicate any design variation, so once our inventory sells out, we introduce whatever new designs and colors the gas kiln produces.
These copitas or ceramic cups can be used to sip mezcal but will also sit pretty as a display piece in a bar cabinet.
Because each cup is handmade (no molds are used), the size, shape, colors and patterns vary on each piece, even within the set.
